Mike Tindall, 43, said that Prince Louis was on a 'sugar high' at the Platinum Pageant over the weekend.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest joined his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the closing event of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Sunday, and made headlines with his very funny behaviour.

During the show, four-year-old Louis could be seen pulling faces, moving around the Royal Box and at one point covering his mother's mouth with his hand.

Now, Zara Tindall's husband has revealed that his hilarious behaviour could have been down to a 'sugar high'.

Speaking on his podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, Mike said: "Louis, he was just wanting to have fun."

He continued: "My two are always mischievous so it's trying to keep a lid on. There were a lot of sweets out back though, so there was a real sugar high."

The rugby star went on to add: "They're all young… it's a long time. But as any parents knows you just do whatever needs to be done."

Speaking of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in general, Mike said it was "outstanding" and "great to be a part of".
